In the U.S., cobbler is a dessert consisting of fruit filling poured into a large baking dish over batter that rises through when baking. Cobbler was known in the United States from at least the early 19th century, and peach cobbler was known soon after that. Many southern states serve peach cobbler (something more like a peach pie), but Texas peach cobbler contains real Texas peaches. Texas Peach Cobbler has been famous since about 1900.
